Denton Vacuum provides tools enabling innovation in emerging technologies—those groundbreaking new trends in the thin film coating industry. Emerging technologies may involve an application of an established coating technology performed in innovative way to the expansion into newer applications or creative new developments in coating technologies that overcome long–standing roadblocks in the industry. Technologies that successfully cross over from early–stage feasibility studies into commercially viable industry solutions are among the most significant emerging technology areas of focus.

Emerging technologies undertake and express cutting–edge issues associated with materials, processing, and interfaces in both the research and manufacturing activities, including surface and interface measurements and analysis, materials, chemicals, supplies, vacuum production and measurement, and related instrumentation for surface, interface and film measurements—from new thin film applications in alternative energy generation and storage, as well as energy conservation, economically viable alternatives to classic transparent conducting oxides (TCOs), for example—from new thin film applications in alternative energy generation and storage, as well as energy conservation, economically viable alternatives to classic transparent conducting oxides (TCOs), for example—nanotubes to nanowires, new transparent oxide electronics applications, TFTs and new material junction devices, high performance electronics on flexible transparent substrates.

These emerging technologies can be seen in applications within semiconductors, photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, imaging, thin film batteries, MEMS, medical implants, displays, wear coatings and in processes found in semiconductors, aerospace, data storage, medical devices, plastic injection molding and a variety of specialty industrial applications—all that enhance yields, improve productivity and meet technology roadmaps.
